Default Looking for recommendations

I am brand new to the forum. I have brewed about a half dozen batches of home brew. I have a pale ale in the works right now. I am looking for some help with a recipe or beer style for my other carboy. I don't really like a strong hops taste(I ate a hops pellet on a brewery tour about 6 years ago...ever since...flashbacks yuck!). I am looking for something with a little more body than your typical lager but very drinkable. I am interested in doing a fruit beer if anyone has a solid recipe for strawberry, apricot, or even a hot pepper beer. If you have any ideas spit um out!

I have very similar tastes to yours. Not a big fan of super hoppy stuff. I would try out some commercial beers and see what styles you like. I love weizenbocks and dunkels. I also always seem to have a simple hefeweizen on tap. You may also want to try some belgians - blondes, tripels etc. I am not a huge stout and porter fan so I tend not to make them (although I am being talked into making a russion imperial stout for some freinds).

Let me know if want some reccomendations on specific commercial beers to sample.

Do you brew AG or extract.

Search the recipes f/ a good looking American Wheat beer and brew it.

Add 2 or 4 oz Apricot Flavoring in sencondary

The wheat goes well with apricot and its low IBUs
